“FEELINGS WITH BACKBONE”

AS I AM HONORED AND PROUD TO FOLLOW UP WITH A SECOND MUSIC REVIEW OF THE SUPREMELY TALENTED AND GIFTED SINGER SONGWRITER MICHELLE WALKER AND HER NEW RELEASE ALBUM CALLED “BACKBONE”. I’VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO WRITE HER LINER NOTES IN THIS MARVELOUS AND WONDERFUL MUSIC ALBUM. AS I STATED IN MY LAST REVIEW OF MICHELLE AND HER LAST ALBUM I’VE TRULY HAD A “BETTER DAY” AFTER DISCOVERING MICHELLE’S MUSIC. WITH THIS AMAZING AND TALENTED SINGER & SONGWRITER MICHELLE ARRIVES WITH THE ALBUM CALLED BACKBONE & THE FIRST SONG ON THIS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL & TRULY SPIRITED ALBUM IS CALLED “TRYING TO BE ME” THE SONG RIGHT OFF THE BAT STARTS OUT WITH THE SOUND OF TOTAL HIT MUSICALITY. MICHELLE REALLY HAS THAT VOICE THAT IS TOTALLY MIRACULOUS, AND WHEN MICHELLE SINGS SHE SINGS ABOUT REALISM, THIS SONG IS A SONG THAT REALLY SINGS HER HONESTY AND LYRICS THAT ADD THAT TRUE VALIDITY TO THEM. MICHELLE NEVER NEEDS TO TRY TO DO ANYTHING, HER VOCALS AND THE MUSICALITY OF THIS SONG ARE EQUALLY BEAUTIFUL AND NICE HARMONIES FALL RIGHT INTO PLACE. “JACK OR JILLAROO” MICHELLE CONTINUES HER AMAZING HARMONIES AND HER SMOOTH AND COMFORTING VOCALS AND THE LYRICS OF THE AND MAKE THE SONG COME ALIVE WITH A TRUTHFUL STORY ABOUT LOYALTY & TRUE FRIENDSHIP AMONG TWO FRIENDS. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “PHOENIX” IS A TRULY AMAZING TRIBUTE TO MICHELLE’S ABILITY TO CROSS OVER THE MUSIC GROOVE AND THE SONG HAS A TRULY BLUESY FEEL AND IS A REALLY NICE SONG, AND MICHELLE’S VOCALS ARE OUTSTANDING. THE NEXT SONG “BACKBONE” MICHELLE CONTINUES TO SOAR ABOVE & BEYOND ALL EXPECTAIONS IN HER AMAZING VOCALS AND THE HAVE A CATCHY FLARE AND ALLOWS ONE TO HEAR MICHELLE AND HER SHEER MUSIC ARTISTRY. THE SONG IS A TOTAL HIT AND MICHELLE ARRIVES & KICKS AND PUNCHES HER WAY  THIS GRINDY AND UP TEMPO SONG. “WE’VE GOT SOMETHING” HAS A FEEL OF OLD SCHOOL COUNTRY, HOWEVER MICHELLE ARRISES TO THE OCCASION WITH HER AMAZINGLY CATCHY AND FULL OF FLAVORFUL VOCALS, THE MUSICALITY OF HER BAND ADDS TO THE AWESOME APPEAL TO HER GIFT OF SINGING A SONG THAT JUST SOUNDS GREAT. “SUMMER’S NEARLY OVER” AN ALMOST ACCAPELLA OF SORTS, WHERE MICHELLE SHOWCASES HER SMOOTH HARMONIES AND MAKES THE SONG ONE OF THOSE FUN SONGS TO SING ALONG TO, AND MAKES ONE YEARN FOR SUMMER. THE NEXT AMAZINGLY GREAT SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS CALLED “SHE’S GOT CLASS” WHERE MICHELLE ADDRESSES THE ISSUES THAT SOME GIRLS HAVE TO DEAL WITH HAVING CLASS. “WHAT I LOVE” AS THE SONG STARTS I FELT THE TOTAL TALENT IN THIS SONG, THIS SONG HAS A MATURE AND REAL HONEST FEEL TO IT AND ONE OF MY FAVORITES ON THE ALBUM. MICHELLE IS ONE OF THOSE SINGERS THAT I CAN IMMEDIATLEY TELL FROM THE START OF A SONG WHAT KIND OF SONG IT’S GOIN GTO BE, AND THIS ONE IS A MOST ENJOYABLE SONG.  “BURNING UP INSIDE” THE BLUES ARRIVE AGAIN THROUGH MICHELLE’S AMAZING VOCAL RANGE AND THE SMOOTHNESS AROUND THE CURVES OF THE SONG MAKE IT A REAL PIECE OF SOLID MUSIC, ONE I REALLY ENJOYED VERY WELL. “COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOU” A DUET WITH TYSON COLMAN AND THERE DESCRIPTION OF A COUPLE THAT CAN’T STAND THE WAY THINGS ARE WITH EACH OTHER, HOWEVER, THEY CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT EACH OTHER, AND MICHELLE REALLY MAKES THE SONG FEEL ALIVE AND A BREATHING SONG THAT PROJECTS REAL AND HONEST FEELIINGS THROUGH THE MUSIC AND HARMONIES OF BOTH MICHELLE & TYSON. “WHEN I TAKE THE STAGE” MICHELLE AND HER VOCALS ARE OUTSTANDING AND HER VOICE REALLY BRINGS IN THAT SOUND OF MATURITY AND SOUNDS AMAZINGLY CONFIDENT AND STRONG, I PERSONALLY FELL IN LOVE WITH HER HARMONIES THAT ARE JUST OUTSTANDING AND THE SONG HAS AN UPBEAT RHYTHM THAT MICHELLE KEEPS THE PULSE ALIVE WITH HER PERFECT VOCALS THAT MAKE THE SONG FUN AND CATCHY AND ONE THAT HAS RADIO FRIENDLY THROUGHOUT. “HOMEWARD CALL” MICHELLE HAS THAT OLD STYLE WITH FIDDLE AND STRUMMING IN AN ALMOST BLUEGRASS FEEL TO THIS SONG AND IS FRESH AND HAS A TEMPO THAT ALLOWS TO PLACE THOSE DANCING SHOES ON AND START SHOWING YOUR STUFF ON THE DANCE FLOOR.  ALL IN ALL I LOVED THIS ALBUM, THE ALBUM BRINGS IN MICHELLE AT HER BEST, AND SHE SEEMS TO HAVE A MATURITY IN HER VOCALS THROUGHOUT, AND THE MIX IS SUPERB AND MICHELLE SHOWS HER REAL TALENT AND TRUE MUSICAL DIVERSITY AND HER ABILITY TO CHANGE IT UP, FROM OLD STYLE COUNTRY TO BLUES TO FALVORFUL AND AMAZINGLY FUN SONGS THAT TRULY HAVE “BACKBONE” TO THEM. I THANK MICHELLE OF HER TREMENDOUS GIFT OF PURE MUSICIANSHIP & WONDERFUL SONGWRITING AND HER TOTAL MUSICALITY. I ALSO THANK HER FOR HER “MATESHIP” AND BRINGING THIS WONDERFUL ALBUM TO MY EARS AND ALWAYS LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING MORE FROM THIS AMAZINGLY TALENTED MUSICIAN AND MATESHIP MICHELLE WALKER AND ALLOWING ME TO DO “WHAT I LOVE”

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. with over 30 years experience. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry, writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and be exposed to their craft. As of date I have written well over 180 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists, but all in all my wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry and with my "Positive " music posts through my writing about them and reviewing their album always in a "Positive" forum.
